Midnight Waltz is a a black tea (orange pekoe grade) high in antioxidants with an intoxicating blueberry flavor.
While dancing at the ball, Cinderella loses track of time until she hears the clock strike midnight and realizes she must leave. The black tea reflects the falling darkness of midnight while the naturally sweet blueberry carries the sweet innocence and pleasure in a waltz danced with a prince.
Ingredients: Black tea (orange pekoe grade) from the Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula, and Uva regions in Sri Lanka, cornflower petals, blackberry leaves, natural flavors.
Hot tea: Use boiling water. If you want to gauge the temperature it should be about 100ºC/212ºF. Use approximately 1 teaspoon per 6-8 ounces. Let the tea steep for 3-5 minutes. Great plain, with sweetener, or milk/cream and sweetener.
Iced tea: Use boiling water (100ºC/212ºF). Use 1 slightly rounded teaspoon per 6-8 ounces. Pour 3-4 ounces of boiling water over the tea and let steep 3-5 minutes. Then pour into an acrylic glass filled with ice. If desired, add sweetener (tip: it is hard to dissolve sweetener in cold water so either add the sweetener to the water just after steeping or try a simple syrup).
